    "Behind The Beard"- The Importance of a Role Model - Dr. Manolis Manolakakis

    "Behind The Beard"- The Importance of a Role Model - Dr. Manolis Manolakakis

    Today, in honor of father’s day, I would like to share my conversation with a good friend and colleague of mine, whose story is a perfect example of the importance of a role model and its importance to future success. In my opinion, there is no better role model than one’s father. Someone you grew up with and looked up to since the day you were born. Someone that provides, protects, loves, and inspires you. A figure larger than life, your hero. 
    As the son of Greek immigrants, Dr. Manolis Manolakakis grew up in the suburbs of New Jersey. He grew up with the basic and most important values; hard work and kindness, instilled in him by his father.  According to him, it was his father, who taught him the meaning of perseverance and determination, and to always “do what it takes”.
    Manolis Manolakakis, DMD, FACS, is a dual board-certified cosmetic and reconstructive facial surgeon and the director at Advanced Facial Surgery in Shrewsbury, New Jersey, and Greenwich Village in Manhattan, New York City.  He currently runs a fellowship program in facial cosmetic surgery and inspires the new generation of surgeons to continue his legacy.

    "Success is not Final" - Dr. Suzan Obagi

    "Success is not Final" - Dr. Suzan Obagi

    It is with the greatest pleasure to introduce today’s guest on my podcast, whose name is known all over the world associated with one of the most recognized skincare brands. Continuing her father’s legacy, Dr. Suzan Obagi has made her presence known in the scientific and academic world through her many contributions in the field of Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, thereby creating her own identity and becoming a leader in her field. Most recently she finished her term as the president of the prestigious American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and is now one of the biggest advocates and leaders in the society, inspiring not just women in the surgical field, but also colleagues like myself. 
    Currently, Dr. Obagi's academic commitments include serving as the director of dermatologic surgery for the residents in the department of dermatology at UPMC as well as the director of the cosmetic dermatologic surgery fellowship. In addition, Dr. Obagi trains physicians from around the world on the latest in cosmetic and laser surgery.
    She has appeared on numerous news outlets and media including USA Today, Elle, Woman’s World, CNN.com, and many others. 
    I invite you to join us for this up-close and personal conversation that gives you an insight into her path to success and happiness as an immigrant woman reaching out to the top in a field commonly dominated by men. Today, she lives her life by Winston Churchill’s quote “Success is not Final” and “Failure is not Fatal”, “It’s the courage to continue that counts”!
    So listen in and enjoy this insightful conversation.

    "The Perfect Combination of Science and Art" - Dr. Masoud Saman

    "The Perfect Combination of Science and Art" - Dr. Masoud Saman

    Today I am very excited to share my personal and intimate conversation with a good friend whom I admire both personally and professionally. 
    Dr. Masoud Saman is a Facial Plastic Surgeon and one of the country's sought-after rhinoplasty surgeons, and currently practices in both Dallas, TX, and recently also in New York City where he had trained as a resident surgeon at Mount Sinai Hospital.
    To me, he is the perfect example of someone whose passion and drive led him to become one of the top surgeons in his profession in a very short period of time. His story is like the story of many immigrants, like myself, who traveled to America to pursue their dream of a better life and a greater future. Not to become rich, but to be able to live a happy and fulfilled life. He will share his definition of success and how he was able to reach his goals by following his passion. From starting out as a 15-year-old immigrant to becoming a street musician backpacking through Spain and France and then ultimately going back to the US to pursue a career as a surgeon. 
    Just like myself, his passion for facial plastic surgery started by being inspired by doctors who treat children with cleft, lip, and palate deformities and his artistic nature and urge to reconstruct both function and aesthetics of the face.

    The Road to Success, a Basic Playbook - Dr. Sean Paul

    Hi Podcast, welcome to Season 2 Episode 6 of the Daria Hamrah Podcast. 
    Today I welcome a very special guest and colleague of mine whom I admire most for his genuine and caring character.
    Dr. Sean Paul is one of the top Oculoplastic Surgeons practicing in Austin, TX. His business mind and entrepreneurship have led him to build one of the largest cosmetic surgery practices in the Austin area by recruiting other renowned plastic surgeons into his group.
    He is very well known nationally and internationally and frequently speaks and teaches in scientific meetings and events and is one of the most respected authorities in his field.  I personally met him several years ago when he mentored me in one of the latest techniques in facial rejuvenation and I got to know him professionally as well as personally. But Dr. Paul is not just a surgeon. He is a father, husband, and a successful entrepreneur. His success story is simple and comes down to the basics:  No fear of failure, pure determination and grit, and ultimately driven by his passion! Today he shares his story with us in an intimate and honest conversation. So listen in and hope you enjoy it!

    From Branding and Marketing Guru to Yoga Guru - Joshua Blair

    From Branding and Marketing Guru to Yoga Guru - Joshua Blair

    Today I want to introduce a special guest, who is a marketing and branding guru turned  Yoga and wellness instructor. From a fast-paced New York City lifestyle to a chill, laid-back lifestyle on the west coast of Mexico. 
    Joshua Blair, who is the co-founder of Brandthumb, a marketing and Advertising firm based out of Tampa, Florida is one of today’s experts and authorities in Branding and Advertising. Prior to creating his own company, Joshua started his career during the dot-com boom in California in the 90s and early 2000s only to move to a fast pace lifestyle working for one of the biggest brands like Disney, ESPN, Panasonic, Citi Bank, and Chase.  
    What makes him unique is that despite all his success he has never lost sight of his true purpose, which is working for the things he believes in. 
    One of his recent projects which is honoring the military women’s memorial and veterans by creating the #appresheation, says it all! But before we get into the details of how this came about, I invite you to listen to his story, which is inspiring not only to me but to a lot of men and women in our country.

    How Passion and Determination Superseeds All Odds - Dr. Rania Habib

    How Passion and Determination Superseeds All Odds - Dr. Rania Habib

    Today I want to welcome my next guest, who like many of my previous guests is an inspiration and role model to many people. As if growing up as a minority and daughter to Egyptian parents in Texas and Minnesota wasn’t hard enough, she chose a career path dominated by men and also known to be owned by the “old boys club” in the United States. Choosing to become a doctor and on top of it, a surgeon comes with a lot of sacrifices and traditionally our society has been discouraging women to enter the field. Kind of an outdated vision if you ask me, but so it was for Dr. Rania Habib, who is currently an instructor at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. 
    To many known as a male-dominated field (for context, only about 8% of all OMS’s are female), she did not shy away from the challenge and followed her passion and since never looked back. Her passion for treating children in need, lead her to pursue additional training in Pediatric Craniofacial Surgery, and today she teaches young students at the University and inspires many more through her social media channels on Instagram and TikTok, just like she was inspired by her own parents and many of her mentors. 
    She is a great example of how well parenting and mentorship cultivates your passion, motivates you to reach for the sky and ultimately leads to success. In a society where we are so quick to blame lack of opportunity, bad influence from the outside, or demonize social media, we have forgotten to hold ourselves accountable for our own actions, successes, and failures. 
    While most people get caught up in pontificating and thinking about what they want to do or better even, think about thinking, until they find 10 reasons why they won’t be able to succeed, the Ranias out there just go out there and do it. They don’t look for excuses and instead look for solutions to their problems keeping only one goal in mind, follow your passion, no matter what the odds say. 
    I always tell people, if you know only one person that has done it, that means you can do it too. Period!
    So listen in and hopefully her story will inspire you as it has inspired me.
